Lambeth has more than 50 parks and open spaces that are great for events
We are called EventLambeth, which is the events service of Lambeth Council. We are an internal service within the Councils directorate for Environment, and so we work closely with our colleagues in Parks, Sports, Highways, Parking and Community Safety. Our aim is simple… to produce, organise and help others create culturally diverse public events across the whole borough which everyone can enjoy and get involved in as much or as little as they wish.
Every year the EventLambeth team work closely with the event organisers and key stakeholders of over 300 community, third sector and commercial events across our parks, open spaces and many highway locations including street parties. It involves up to million people in attendance including the annual Lambeth Country Show which has become so important to the borough and its residents.
Many events in Lambeth need to be given the go-ahead by us at EventLambeth. We are the ones that will provide you with the right permits and paperwork if your application is successful. We will also help you with all the health and safety stuff. It Includes which licenses you might need, budgeting, being prepared, insurance and everything else in between. For information on our events policy, processes and protocols for applying to hold an event in Lambeth, download a copy of our EventLambeth Events Guide.
The service is split into three small teams and work across all areas of indoor and outdoor event management.
We are seeking an experienced events administration professional to join our EventLambeth team. The role will be responsible for working with our event officers who hire our parks, open spaces and highways across Lambeth for a range of public events and festivals. You will also assist the team with the delivery of the events strategy, policy and development of the service with regards to street events, indoor events hire, community events funding, training and support projects.
Location: Lambeth Civic Centre, Brixton, SW2 1EG
Job type: 3 month full-time fixed term contract.
